market bag for mom
I love this pattern
. Really, I think this one is so fun and versatile. Remember I did a scaled down version for Halloween
? Well, I did get around to making one market bag for my mom for Christmas. I thought it was only fitting because she runs our local farmers market every summer and I know she’ll put it to use.
I did add a bit of medium weight interfacing to the lining so it’s a little more sturdy for carrying all sorts of fun goodies.
I think these colors are great and the Katie Jump Rope yellow dot print is really cool. This project is (like the pattern says) a really great stash buster. So if you’re looking at your fabric stash and wondering how to move out the old and bring in the new, whip up a bunch for your friends and family and you’ll be all set for that next buy!
I’m trying to use up some of my older fabric for 2 reasons:
- Because I’m not really a collector, and mostly things just start to bother me if they sit around for any length of time.
- I’m ready to bring in the new!
How about you? Are you itching to buy some new fabric?
